Academic integrity is at the heart of GCU’s values and is integral to our university community. According to the Center for Academic Integrity, there are five fundamental values that are central to academic integrity: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. Before responding to this Discussion Question, view GCU’s website on Academic Integrity athttp://www.gcu.edu/Academics/Academic-Integrity.php

Pay special attention to the Policies and Resources section of this site.

Consider the following scenario: A student took a communication course his freshman year and passed it with a grade of A. Four years later, the student is now taking a leadership course that has a similar assignment to one he completed his freshman year. He reuses one of his assignments and submits it as an assignment in his current, leadership class.

Is this considered a violation of academic integrity? Explain your answer with consideration given to the five fundamental values of the Center for Academic Integrity and the specific policies of the Center.

Hunt, in the article, “Patient-Centered Care and Cultural Practices: Process and Criteria for Evaluating Adaptations of Norms and Standards in Health Care Institutions,” writes, “Patient-centeredness suggests that health care providers and organizations adapt the services they provide to reflect the goals, needs and values of individual patients.”

Why is something as important as this not the norm, particularly since the mission of health care institutions is to provide care to those who cannot care for themselves?
